Another, and final (according to Anne Rice), addition to the Vampire Chronicles. Favorite characters from seperate story lines are brought together to tie up loose ends. The plot seemed to drag and rush simultaneously - too much time spent here and not enough there. The narrator, David Pittu, rendered wonderful performances for the male characters of the story; however, the female characters were diminished by his unmistakably male voice. I look forward to Anne Rice's future works centered on "those who walk in the light."
A savory story which swells the heart and sparks the mind. The author is an inspired artist well rooted in his medium. The narration was superb and proved the Indian accent to be a proud member of the wonderful spices of India.
Truly worth the time and, unfortunately at times, effort. Although the presentation rambled on a bit too often the many embedded gems rewarded my patience. The narrators voice is pleasant, but her presentation contributed to this book's monotonous stretches. The ending was abrupt, unresolved, and without summation - which I would have appreciated at the end of this marathon. Criticisms aside, I still recommend this book to anyone interested in beginning to grasp the foundation that shapes our thoughts and attitudes today.
